The Arts Society Tenterden (TAST) is one of 350 societies in the UK. The society was founded in 1990 and became an immediate success, bringing together local people with an interest in the arts and a desire to share, extend and widen that interest.
There are ten lectures a year given by lecturers recommended by The Arts Society as expert lecturers in their specialist fields. Other activities such as study days, day visits, extended UK visits, and cultural trips abroad are also arranged.
We have an active group of volunteers involved in Church Recording who are in the process of documenting all the churches in the Romney Marsh. In addition we support Young Arts.
If you are interested in joining the Society please contact us. Membership is open to all. The average wait for membership is about 12 months. We meet on the first Tuesday of the month, except January and August, at Tenterden Leisure Centre, at 10am for coffee before the meeting which begins at 11am
